A Burmese python picked the
wrong Key Largo yard for lunch
Tuesday.
Sue Nulman was startled to
see the 7-foot snake devouring
one of the doves that flock to a
feeder in her bayside yard near
mile marker 98.6.
"Thank goodness there was a
big tree limb-right next to me,"
she said. "I'd never killed a
snake in my life, but I picked up
the limb and whacked it a half-
dozen times."
Her screams brought friend
Brian Schofield running to the
scene. He carried a 6-foot piece
of metal rebar, which they used
to dispatch the reptilian intruder.
"That snake was smart,"
Nulman said. "He was almost
completely hidden under the
leaves. I didn't want to let him
get away because of the damage

Sugarcane fields such as this will come under state control under a deal worked this week with
U.S. Sugar. But it will be years perhaps decades before it's all final.


Board looks at deal Monday


'GLADES /IFrom 1

until November, and U.S. Sugar
will be allowed to wind down its
operations over the next six
years.
The South Florida Water
Management District has been
charged with overseeing the
acquisition .- and finding the
money to pay for it.
Mike Collins, an Islamorada
fishing guide who has served on
the district board since 1999,
said it won't be easy.
"Hopefully it will all work
out and be hunky-dory," Collins
said. "But we don't have a real
good history of things being
hunky-dory."
Collins said the complex
transaction, which would
include swapping some land out-
side the restoration area for
properties not owned by U.S.
Sugar, will require extensive
changes in Everglades restora-
tion plans.
"This will take most of the
Everglades-restoration money
we have," Collins said: "I have a
whole bunch of questions on
how this is going to work."
Collins said he pushed for the
1992 purchase of the Frog Pond
psovertv ,in1-South ,Florida as. a


key step in, improving water
flow to Florida Bay.
"We finally got a project
design for the Frog Pond that
works 16 years later," Collins
.said. "That has been a lessons-
learned thing for me."
District board Vice
Chairwoman Shannon Estenoz,
a Keys native, said reaction from
the environmental community
has been "almost unanimously
euphoric."
"Everybody is very happy,"
Estenoz said. "I'm very opti-
mistic we'll get the deal done,
and it will be a great deal for the
Everglades and ultimately for
the people of South Florida."
Estenoz said, "It's prudent to
stay well-grounded in reality,
and we need to be fully aware of
the challenges before us. But
there's nothing wrong in saying
this is one of the biggest things
that's ever happened to protect
the Everglades."
Even Barley acknowledged,
"This isn't going to happen
tomorrow."
However, the comprehensive
Everglades restoration work
planned by the federal and state
governments is running over
budget and well behind sched-
ule, she said.
, "I can ,un th6, numbers in my


head .and this is a bargain,"
Barley said. "This is going to
save us money in the long run."
A large portion of the land
near Lake Okeechobee likely
can be converted to a large reser-
voir system to store and filter
water flowing south from
Central Florida.
A complex series of under-
ground storage facilities. envi-
sioned as a main element of the
original plan figured to be more
expensive and troublesome than
expected, Barley said.
"We're spending less than $2
billion instead of $100 billion,
and the science is better," she
said.
She credited Crist for making
the staggering proposal to U.S.
Sugar.
"Charlie has been with us on
a lot of Everglades issues,"
Barley said. "He wasn't afraid to
go out and ask."
The Water Management
District board convenes Monday
for its first joint look at the pro-
posal.
"We have to do a lot of due
diligence," Collins said. "It's not
just drawing a reservoir on map.
We're obligated by law to look
at a lot of technical and financial
issues."

he could do to wildlife or to
pets."
Burmese pythons aren't
native to South Florida. Large
numbers of them are former pets
released into the wild, allowing
the species to gain a foothold in
the wilds of Everglades National
Park. They're not poisonous but
they can grow to -more than a
dozen feet long.
Last year, six pythons were
captured on.North Key Largo -
the first confirmed incidents of
pythons in the Keys. One was
found because it had eaten a Key
Largo wood rat that had a radio
tracker on it and was being mon-
itored by researchers.
And in April, residents of
Marathon's Crane Point
Hammock subdivision reported
seeing a python that may be 20
feet or longer.
"The good news is we
haven't had a single one [on
North Key Largo] in the last six
months," said Steve Klett, man-
ager of the Crocodile Lake
National. Wildlife Refuge on


North Key Largo. "But the fall is
breeding season, so that's when
they'll start moving around
more."
"I know they have them [on
North Key Largo] but I never
expected to see one in my yard,"
Nulman said. "That snake was
big enough to easily kill a 40- or
50-pound pound dog. I wanted
to warn people not to leave their
pets out."
Nulman said the python that
took up residence in woods near
her home was identified as a
male by a state-park ranger.
The snake "must have been
nesting in the roots of a dead
tree. We have a lot of birds and
squirrels so it must have been
like a buffet for him," she said.
Wildlife experts fear that a
rapidly growing population of
pythons could threaten native
species. Pythons can lay more
than 100 eggs at a time.
Juvenile pythons could
recently be purchased cheaply as
pets. Florida now requires a
$100 permit for owners of cer-
tain exotic pets that could upset
the state's ecological balance if
freed.

Boat registration fees to go up Tuesday


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Only one shopping day
remains before. boat-registration
fees go up.
Staff at the Monroe County
Tax Collector's Office expect
Monday to be busier than normal
due to a July 1 hike in the cost of
licensing a motorized vessel.
More than half of the 28,235
vessels registered in Monroe
County are considered Class 1,
measuring between 16 and 25
feet. That registration fee will rise
from the current $32.50 locally to
more than $48, the exact amount
depending on local surcharges.
The state fee for a Class 1 boat
has been $18.50 since 1991.
Added to that is a 50 percent
fee approved by the Monroe
County Commission in 2002 to
support local boating and marine
improvements. Combined with

Not-guilty plea
entered for Dumas

The Monroe County Public
Defender's office entered a not-
guilty plea Thursday for 'Key
Wester Jimmy Dumas, accused
of attempted murder in a June 2
machete attack.
Dumas, 44, is accused of try-
ing to kill Jacob Freeman, 22, at
Freeman's Key Haven home.
Police say Dumas went to
Freeman's home at 11 p.m. the
night of the attack for a place to
stay. Freeman let him in, saying
he could shower and sleep there
as long as he didn't have drugs
with him. But when Freeman
realized Dumas came with
cocaine, he reportedly kicked
him out.
That's when, police say,
Dumas came back with a
machete.
Police say Dumas wok&
Freeman up and hacked his face,
head, back, hands and arms.
Covered in blood, Freeman was
able to break free and started
banging on neighbors' doors,
screaming for help.
Dumas was later found hid-
ing in the mangroves and arrest-
ed on a charge of attempted
murder. If convicted, he faces up
to 15 years in prison.

Empty piggy bank

means cuts are real

Who says folks don't read?
Few Monroe County commissioners would think that this
week after receiving a flurry of e-mails, letters and phone calls
from patrons alarmed at the threat of closing down libraries.
"Betrayed that is how I feel," Key Largo resident Geri
Smith wrote in a broadside intended to hit all five commission-
ers between the eyes.
And Geri is not alone.
E-mail blasts ricocheted around the county Friday, including
one sent by the Greater Marathon Chamber of Commerce,
another sent by the Friends of the Marathon Library and oth-
ers.
All recounted with horror reports that county libraries in
Islamorada, Marathon and Big Pine Key would be shuttered to
save money on staffing and other expenses.
"Once closed, these libraries will never reopen," Marathon
resident Lois Giffen warned in a widely distributed e-mail.
An $11 million shortfall in the county budget has clearly trig-
gered a round of what-if scenarios, and rumors are rampant.
Our sister paper, The Reporter, broke a story Friday that one
possible cut could shut down the county's Building
Department offices on Plantation Key, moving that operation
to the Marathon Government Center. -
Growth Management Director Andrew Trivette offered that
as one example of the kinds of cost cutting that could happen
if his division has to shrink by 11 percent.
There will be other examples brought to the table by other
county department heads and division directors. And we can
expect plenty of howls coming from residents trying to get
their arms around what's happening.
Unfortunately, there's little experience in these parts for
reductions of this magnitude.
That's because for the past three years the county has been
dipping into reserves to balance its budget. Well, that piggy-
bank is empty. Add the drop in property values due to the
stalled real estate market and the state mandate to roll back
taxes the county is in an unprecedented bind.
This time it's going to hurt. And the folks who want to pro-
tect their local library, or transit service, or shorter trip to the
nearest county office had better weigh in now.
Wednesday, the County Commission will get its first detailed
look at the numbers in a budget workshop that begins at 10
a.m. at the Marathon Government Center. This may just turn
out to be a standing-room-only crowd, in marked contrast with
the public ennui of previous years.

County Commission continues to let down residents


EDITOR:
Betrayed that is how I feel about the
actions of the Monroe County commissioners
and it is to then that I direct this letter.
What do you mean that you were surprised
by the amount of money you will need to shave
off expenditures in order to come up with a
workable budget for the coming fiscal year?
Were you totally in the dark when, for each of
the past four or five years, you approved budg-
ets that pulled money out of the county's reserve
fund? And if you were, if fact, in the dark, who
shall we trust to run the business of the county?
The Monroe County administrator is supposed
to work for you and yet you seem to be saying
in your surprised state that you had no idea just
how bad things were.
Were you in the dark regarding the financial
health of our county when you set aside $2 mil-
lion to sink yet another ship down in Key West?
In what frame of mind were you when deciding
that another artificial reef was more important
than the social services you should be obligated
.to offer the residents of Monroe County?
Eliminate the shuttle bus service for the eld-
erly and disabled; make further cuts to our


county library system; do away with the only
access many of our residents have to the coun-
ty's business by eliminating the telecast of meet-
ings just what exactly is going on with you
and just where do your responsibilities toward
the residents of unincorporated Monroe County
lie?
In addition, aside from eliminating all of the
community aspects to what was supposed to be
the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural
Center, there is talk of moving the Department
of Growth Management which was supposed
to be one of the primary government depart-
ments moved to the center in the largest and
most populous area of unincorporated Monroe
County down to the incorporated city of ,
Marathon.
Perhaps you do not get it you are sup-
posed to help us, not make decisions that make
living here decidedly more difficult. Let me end
by saying that I think in this election year we,
the residents of unincorporated Monroe County,
need to make the changes necessary to get some
responsible individuals working for us.

Libraries define a community


EDITOR:
Wednesday at 10 a.m., the Monroe County
Commission will hold a special meeting at the
Marathon Government Center to consider,
among other things, the closure of the Marathon,
Big Pine and Islamorada branches of the free
public library.
Once closed, these libraries will never reopen.
If you care about this community, you are urged
to attend this meeting and register to speak. Not
everyone will get the opportunity, but they do
count the number of blue cards filled out.
Before the meeting, please call or e-mail all of
the county commissioners, and get your friends
to do the same. Let them know that we are will-
ing to pay for the services performed by the

Don't cut the libraries
EDITOR:
We are snowbirds. We winter in Marathon,
as it provides a safe harbor, good facilities and a
great library. I can fish and visit only so much,
and the library keeps me from getting bored. I
read three books a week on average and without
the library, we would probably go to Vero
Beach.
The Keys' income is tourist-based and with-
out us, you would suffer severe economic
stress. I can't believe you would deprive your
school kids a place to do research through
books and the Internet. Readiffg is the intellec-
tual backbone of this nation.

Editor's note: Library services are among
those being looked at for cuts in the county's
next fiscal year.


library. The county hopes to save hundreds of
thousands of dollars. A tiny millage increase
should take care of it.
If these libraries are lost, we throw away an
enormous amount of infrastructure, an irreplace-
able loss for short-term gain. Mayor Mario Di
Gennaro is quoted as saying the county has to stop
giving everything away. The library is not free; we
pay for it with out taxes. If our taxes don't stretch
far enough, I am willing to pay a little more to
ensure this community treasure is not lost. .
Whether you are selling houses or renting
hotel rooms or just trying to attract and retain a
workforce, the loss of a library sends an unmis-
takable message. At the Florida Keys Council of
the Arts, we spend a lot of time selling the Keys
as a cultural destination. A town without a library
is by definition a town without a culture.

Lay people can help recognize abuse victims


EDITOR:
Thanks once more for financial
support from the Florida Coalition
Against Domestic Violence and the
office of the attorney general of
Florida, the Cut Out Domestic
Violence Program will be in partici-
pating salons throughout Monroe
County.
The Cut Out Domestic Violence
program, rolled out by Gov. Charlie
Crist a couple a years ago, targets
hair salon professionals by providing
them with information to help deter-
mine if their clierits are in an abusive
relationship. Since salon profession-
als typically make up a captive audi-
ence, many such professionals are
poised to observe or learn more
about their clients than most other
professionals. So why not train hair
salon professionals for the warning
signs that their clients might be expe-
riencing domestic violence in their
relationship and inform clients of
community resources available to
assist them if desired?
The Monroe County Domestic
Abuse Shelter is the certified domes-
tic violence and sexual assault center
serving victims of domestic violence


and sexual assault from Key Largo to
Key West. We have prepared a fact
sheet of red flags for hair and nail
salon professionals to look for that
might indicate their client or clients
are victims of abuse or violence
within their intimate partner relation-
ship.
Also, DAS has prepared a post-
card-sized handout of services avail-
able free of charge that are provided
by DAS.
The following Keys salons have
agreed so far to participate in the Cut
Out Domestic Violence Program by
making available through their salons
the fact sheet ofjed flags and the
DAS postcard of information for
clients' and patrons' consideration:
Hair Studio 53, Headhunters, Gioia's,
Keys Hairmasters, Dee's Hair Salon,
Island Girl and Nails by Iris.
If your salon would like to partici-
pate, contact the DAS administrative
office at 743-5252. To learn more
about DAS and services, contact 743-
4440.

Students can turn it around and teach


EDITOR:
As principal of the Treasure
Village Montessori for the past 11
.years, my job is to make sure our stu-
dents have everything they need to
learn and excel. But at our school, it's
not just the students who learn. Each
.year when school ends, I tell our stu-
dents what I have learned from them.
Here's what my students taught me
this year:
Be present. Don't live in the
past, don't just live for the future;
enjoy the here and the now.
Be creative. If there's a will,
there's always a way.
+ Be humble and confident.
Balance is everything.
Be involved. We all have oppor-
tunities to make a difference. Go for it!
+ Be honest. It's the path to wis-
dom.
+ Be generous. You don't truly
get until you truly give.
Be brave. Anything else is
counterproductive.
.* Be strong. Define yourself by
the best that's in you, not the worst
that has happened to you.
+ Be timeless. It's never too late.
+ Be resilient. There isn't any-
thing you can't live down, rise above
or overcome.
+ Be passionate. If it comes from
the heart, it makes the biggest impres-
sion and has the most effect.
Be sincere. What you say and


do are reflections of the quality of
your character.
+ Be positive. What you find in
your mind is what you put there; put
positive things there and you'll get
positive things back.
Be resourceful. Almost every-
thing comes from nothing.
+ Be industrious. There are some
people who live in a dream world,
and there are those who turn dreams
into reality.
Thank you to all who supported
the continued success of Treasure
Village Montessori, where we set
high standards, and have even higher
expectations, for our students, parents
and teachers. This year, those stan-
dards and expectations made learning
exciting arid rewarding for everyone
associated with the school, even its
principal.

Health center essential


It was hard to tell what was most pop-
ular, the jumperoo house for tots or the
snow cones.
But the parents and kids who turned
out for the Marathon Health Center's
one-year anniversary had a good time
and good food.
Brodes Hartley, Jr., president and
chief executive officer of Community
Health of South Florida, spoke to
patrons and supporters, sharing a wel-
come for Keys dignitaries that included
Monroe County Mayor Mario Di
Gennaro and Marathon Mayor Pete
Worthington.
CHI's Marathon Advisory Board was
also well represented with Michael
Cunningham, vice president,
and Sunny Booker, a mem-
ber, on hand to meet and
greet folks at the June 14 cel-
ebration.
Booker, the School
District's coordinator of safe
schools, talked about the
impact CHI has already made
in its first year.
The former assistant princi-
pal at Marathon High School
speaks with first-hand experi-
ence of the needs for health
care as part of a larger Wayne
responsibility for our children Keynote
that many teachers and
administrators willingly
accept.
She shared the joy expressed by one
of her students who found his inner
voice by participating in a student the-
ater production that Booker organized at
Marathon High. She also wrote the
script and directed the students. And she
arranged for the same student to get
dental care at CHI.
Community Health is a nonprofit
health-care provider that got its start in
1971 with a federal grant from the
Office of Economic Opportunity and
some funding help Miami-Dade County.
The first cliiic was housed in two trail-
ers parked off U.S. 1 and Southwest
216th Street in Miami-Dade.
Fast-forward 37 years and CHI of
South Florida now operates seven
health centers, including the one in
Marathon.
The South Florida group is affiliated
with Health Choice Network, a collabo-
ration of 33 community health centers
around the country.
Hartley shared information about the
number of patients using CHI's
Marathon Center in the first year:
4,492 patient visits.
1,989 sliding-fee patients (where
federal subsidies assist). ,


$526,766 in services provided.
The Marathon Center has introduced
dental services Wednesdays and Fridays
from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Hartley said they've also added
evening hours Tuesdays and Thursdays,
so people who can't leave work to see a
doctor can get services up until 7-p.m.
those two days.
And now the Marathon Center is
offering OB/GYN services, which
include pap smears, lab testing for preg-
nancy and case management for preg-
nant moms.
Booker said that service is badly
needed in Marathon, where expectant
mothers are generally sent to Key West
or Miami for medical servic-
es.
CHI South Florida oper-
ates seven care centers and
17 school-based programs
for the Miami-Dade School
District. And CHI officials
spoke to the Monroe County
School Board this week
offering to expand its drug
screening program in
Miami-Dade to Keys.
schools. -
Hartley said he hopes the
Alarkham services CHI can offer to the
Publisher uninsured and under-insured
will continue to grow as
health care professionals
identify needs.
"Anyone can use our services,"
Hartley said. "We work out a sliding-fee
scale based on income and family size."
CHI also offers CareNet, a discount
medical plan with rates that start as low
as $25 per month for an individual. CHI
is one of a dozen providers who partici-
pate in CareNet, which operates in Palm
Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade and
Monroe counties.



For anyone who appreciates Keys his-
tory, you have the opportunity to see
and hear living history Monday at the
Islamorada Library, mile marker 82.
Irving Eyster, an archeologist and his-
torian, will present a slide show on
Indian Key, which was the first seat of
government for Dade County (now
Miami-Dade).
Eyster's family has long ties to the
Keys. His grandfather toured the rural
wilderness of the state in 1882 and 1883
and wrote about his travels for an
Indianapolis newspaper.
Eyster's walk down memory lane
begins at 6:30 p.m. Admission is free
and refreshments, will bpe srved.

Marathon resident Donna Christiansen and her daughter, along .with the children of visitor
Paulette King, access the Internet using computers at the Marathon library Friday. This branch,
along with the branches on Big Pine Key and Islamorada, could close as the county struggles
to cut $12.5 million from next year's budget.


Painful cuts likely coming


BUDGET / From I

Tourist Paulette King said she
uses libraries on vacations as a
way to entertain her children.
"If they close it, what will we
do? There's not that much to do
in the Keys. This is a place where
the kids come and it's a safe
haven for them," King said.
Based on the current $79.1
million in property tax revenue, a
$12.5 million cut for the fiscal
year that starts Oct. 1 is equiva-
lent to a 15 percent budget reduc-
tion. The county's Library
Advisory Board warned mem-
bers that closing three libraries
would save $797,317.
Murphy labeled closing any of
the three libraries a "ludicrous"
idea, but added the commission

Man gets 15 years
for Keys sex offense

Monroe County Judge Ruth
Becker on Thursday sentenced a
man to 15 years in state prison
for lewd and lascivious exhibi-
tion in front of two teen girls
under the age of 16.
A jury convicted Iran Lazo-
Gonzalez, 50, of the second-
degree felony May 20.
In August 2007 he exposed
himself to two teen girls at the
Seven Mile Bridge. He was sen-
tenced as a habitual offender.


has tough decisions to make
Wednesday at a 10 a.m. budget
workshop at the Marathon
Government Center. Covering
the shortfall, she said, likely
requires raising taxes.
"We are going to have to raise
taxes, there's no way around it,"
Murphy said. "There's not going
to be a lot of wants and wishes in
this budget. It will be people,
divisions, programs, all kinds of
things."
Fellow commissioners George
Neugent and Dixie Spehar agreed
with Murphy on libraries, saying
the county already closed branch-
es on Mondays last year to save
money.
"This talk about closing down
three libraries is insanity; that's
not going to happen," Neugent
said. "The county government
has to continue to .operate. The
only way I see that happening is
by us raising the millage."
Residents "want a millage
increase [to preserve libraries];
they don't want to cut the
libraries," Spehar said, adding
that while she doesn't support
raising taxes, there may be no
recourse.
Library board member Brad
Trout said talk of the three
branches potentially closing
arose from a meeting between the
board and county Community
Services Director Deb Barsell.
At that meeting, Barsell told
the group she was directed to
trim $3 million from her adopted
2007-08 budget of $8.44 mil-
lion, which meant "across-the-
board" cuts including Bayshore


Manor, Monroe County Transit
and others.
Bayshore Manor on Stock
Island has 16 bedrooms for sen-
iors who need both short- and
long-term care. It also has day-
time programs designed to give
relief to primary care givers.
"I don't want to be part of
evicting seniors," Spehar said.
"There's a moral issue there."
"She just simply said the
County Commission directed her
to come up with this spending cut
and the only way to come up with
close to $3 million is to close
these three," Trout said. "Even
with the libraries closing, she's
only coming up with $2.3 [mil-
lion]."
Barsell, County Administrator
Roman Gastesi and Assistant
County Administrator Debbie
Frederick were all in meetings
Friday and couldn't be reached
for comment. Budget Manager
Tina Boan referred questions to
Gastesi.
A number of personnel cuts
have been rumored, as well,
including Barsell, Florida Keys
Marathon Airport Manager
Reggie Paros and Affordable
Housing Coordinator Lisa
Tennyson.
Murphy said she believes the
Community. Services and
Engineering departments will be
absorbed into other departments,
turning seven divisions into five.
"Community Services has
been cut so much there's no need
for a director and we don't have
the money to start any new build-
ings," she said.

Building office


could close


By DAVID BALL
dball@ keysreporter.com


Talk of closing Monroe
County's Growth Management
office on Plantation Key and
replacing it with a small satellite
office has again surfaced,
although this year's budget pic-
ture makes it more of a reality
than ever, officials say.
"I think it absolutely could be
a reality, and it absolutely can
show significant savings,"
Growth Management Director
'Andrew Trivette said. "This is a
hard proposal to swallow, but
these are. difficult times for the
county and we have to consider
what is best for the citizenry."
The move would mean the
elimination of seven county
employees and require other
employees living in the Upper
Keys to drive to and from the
division's main office in
Marathon.
Customers from Ocean Reef
-o Tavemier who routinely use
the Plantation Key office would
also have to drive to Marathon if
they want to speak face to face
with a planner or building offi-
cial.
Also, county officials would
have to find new tenants for
space in the under-construction
Murray Nelson Government
Center in Key Largo, where the
Upper Keys Growth Manage-
ment office was slated to move.
Trivette outlined his proposal
in a June 17 memo to Deputy
County Administrator Debbie
Frederick. Trivette says the move
could save $233,549 and is one
several options for trimming a
total of $897,000, or 11 percent,
of his division's $8.1 million
budget.
"All the division directors
were asked to identify areas to
make cuts," Trivette said. "The
Growth Management division
alone has made over 35 percent
cuts" the past two years.
"We slimmed down, we
trimmed all the fat. That's why
this is the hardest one."
However, County Com-
missioner Sylvia Murphy, who
represents the Upper Keys, said
Trivette might have to look else-
where for cuts. The commission
is expected to discuss this and
other budget cuts at a workshop


Wednesday at the Marathon
Government Center.
"This is not something that
just came up. However, it's
because of this severe budget
problem we're having a total
money crunch," Murphy said.
"Because of this, it's kind of
developed fast little feet, and I
don't like it.
"People in this county worked
long and hard to have services
brought to all three areas of the
county, and this would be taking
a step backward," she added.
Murphy said she'll be meeting
with Trivette and other county
officials this week to discuss the
plan in detail and consider other
options. She said a satellite
office, -which Growth
Management uses in Stock
Island, wouldn't work in the
Upper Keys.
"What we're talking about is
not Ms. Brown who wants to get
a permit to paint her porch, but
ABC construction company that's
building a quadplex somewhere
and needs to talk to a live person
about all the hoops they have to
jump through," Murphy said.
However, Trivette said such a
contractor likely wouldn't notice
much difference, as large projects
are reviewed and permitted
through the Marathon office. He
added some services might even
be increased.
The Upper Keys Building
Department office is open 8:30
a.m. to 3 p.m.
"If we do a central location in
Marathon, there will be staff in
the office at all times from .8 to
5," Trivette said.
Wednesday, David Thompson
was in the Plantation Key office
submitting plans for a mixed-use
commercial and affordable hous-
ing project in Key Largo. He said
closing the full office would
cause him significant hardship.
"I use this office all the time.
I've been to the Marathon office
maybe twice in my 10 years
building down here," Thompson
said. "I've heard about centraliz-
ing the office, but geographically
it doesn't make sense with the
majority of the people who
would use the office in the Upper
Keys."

vae. For Monroe County, the
breeding grounds are springing
up with the foreclosures.
Neighbors of foreclosed
properties are calling the Florida
Keys Mosquito Control District
regularly with complaints, says
Mikki Coss, supervisor of the
agency's domestic program,
which treats commercial and
residential manmade breeding
sites. That program has inspec-
tors across the Keys, but the
most in Key West, as it's "the
area. with the most pool com-
plaints," Coss said.
But it doesn't take a body of
water as large as a swimming
pool to spawn mosquito larva.
"A bottle cap can breed mos-
quitoes," Coss said.
Inspector Rosalina Rivera
"can think of five foreclosed
homes that I've been stocking
with fish," she said while treat-
ing an abandoned pool in the
Roosevelt Gardens Apartments
in Key West.
Mosquito Control District
staff in Marathon says there
haven't been as many com-
plaints about pool troubles in the
Middle Keys. But like the Lower
Keys, they've been stocking
some abandon pools with mos-
quito-eating fish, gambusia affi-


Where they breed


According to Florida Keys
Mosquito Control District
Domestic Supervisor Mikki
Coss. if takes an object as
small as a bottle cap filled
with water to breed mosqui-
toes. Here are some com-
mon larva-filled items
inspectors find around Keys'
homes:
Air conditioning units


nis, a freshwater guppy.
According to Rivera, the gambu-
sia don't need air circulation and
feed on algae.
The most common mosquito
genus found in the pools and
surrounding areas is the Culex,
Rivera said.
Of the 2,251 service requests
Mosquito Control received last
year from Keys residents, 794
were requests for gambusia fish
and yard inspections. With the
brutal heat of the summer -
which mosquitoes find agreeable
- and a pessimistic future for
the real estate market, phone
calls aren't likely to stop.
According County Clerk
Danny Kolhage, last year there
were 326 Monroe County fore-
closures filed from January to
June 25. For that same time peri-
od in 2008, the number has near-
ly doubled to 627.
Foreclosures occur when a
creditor (a bank) takes owner-
ship of real estate after the
owner fails to pay the mortgage.


Septic tanks
Basketball hoop bases
Bromeliads
Cisterns (Key West has
more than 2,000) .
Rain gutters
Neglected Jet Skis
Large appliances left

Rain barrels

But not all property owners
who fail to pay their mortgage
are foreclosed upon. Sometimes
a bank and owner negotiate to
sell the property for less than the
owner's loan value and the bank
forgives the difference. That's
known as a short sale.
Gary Thomas, a Dunaway
McKenzie Realtor, writes about
foreclosures on his blog,
www. keywestproperties
.blogspot.com/.
Thomas notes 14 bank-
owned condominiums in Key
West and 345 condos for sale on
the island. He says short sales
can make surrounding properties
worth less. Decreasing property
values only perpetuates the
problem, he said.
"People are walking away
from their debt," Thomas told
the Keynoter, adding that it will
take "years and years" before
property values make their way
back to what they were. "That's
why I think our property is going
to go down even further."

Tedder gets ramp project


It outranks

The Marathon City Council,
meeting in regular session
Tuesday, took the following
actions:
Approved a resolution to
accept the qualifications of
Randall G. Tedder Construction
Inc. to reconstruct the boat ramp
adjacent to the former Quay
property at mile marker 54.
The city received three
responses to its request for quali-
fications and Tedder's was the
highest rated. The resolution
passed despite Rose Ann
Hightower, a former city building
services director, speaking on
behalf of Coral Marine
Construction, one of the other
bidders. Hightower questioned
the city's points-based rankings.
Deputy City Manager C.J. Geotis
said Tedder was ranked higher

Teachers get 4 percent raiseI


Contract still
needs to gain
ratification
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com


Keys teachers will contin-
ue to be the highest paid in the
state next year after the teach-
ers' union and Monroe County
School District this week
agreed on a tentative contract
that will give most teachers 4
percent raises.
They include a 2 percent
cost-of-living increase plus
the annual step increase that
averages about 2 percent for
each year a teacher has
worked for the district.. The
contract also includes similar
raises for school-related per-
sonnel such as bus drivers and
food service workers.
Superintendent Randy
Acevedo said a beginning
salary for a teacher would
increase from $41,500 last
year to $42,330 next year.
"At a time when other
school districts are looking at
salary cuts, I'm happy to be
able to continue to raise ours,"
Acevedo said. "We've made
[budget] reductions but they
haven't been in the class-
rooms. I'm glad we were able
to come to an agreement."


Schools across Florida are
dealing with significant budg-
et cuts, including in Miami-
Dade County, where its school
district is considering going
back on already promised
raises for teachers.
Leon Fowler, president of
the United Teachers of
Monroe, said Monroe is only
the third county in Florida to
have agreed to a 2008-09
teachers contract. He said
Union and Citrus counties
have also agreed to between 2
and 2.5 percent cost-of-living
raises.
"The fact we got a raise is
pretty incredible, actually. I
think everybody deserves
credit," Fowler said. "It's
basically going to keep us
even with inflation."
School Board Chairman
Steve Pribramsky said the
raises should help principals
recruit teachers.
"Obviously, the biggest
winner is the children,"
Pribramsky said. "Having a
stable teaching staff we've
always said is the real key in
student achievement. I hope
to see a drop in teacher
turnover next year."
However, Acevedo said
future raises will be difficult
if the economy, and district
budgets, continue to deflate.


"If the economy continues
to go south and our $88 mil-
lion budget has to be reduced,
we'll have to balance it out by
reductions in staff to have
something available for rais-
es," he said.
Last year, the district and
the union agreed to 3 percent
cost-of-living raises. That was
after district consultant
Management Advisory Group
recommended against across-
the-board raises for all teach-
ers, saying the district now
pays about 13 percent more
than 10 other Florida school
districts studied for the report.
The report included a look
at supplemental pay given for
additional teacher work,
which has been a criticism of
the district in recent years.
Fowler said this year's pay
raises were a result of a half-
mill property tax that was
continued by Keys voters this
past fall. The tax generated
more than $13 million last
year.
"We would've been in dire
straights if the public didn't
pass the half-mill," Fowler
said. "It probably would've
gutted the school system."
Fowler said the teachers'
union still has to ratify the
new contract in August, when
teachers return from summer
break.


Drug tests for all?


Not yet in schools
By ERIN EHRLICH O*1R SLS
eehrlich@keysreporter.com


For now, the only Keys high
school students who will be sub-
ject to drug testing are athletes.
But that could change down
the road, as the option of drug
testing all high school students
participating in extracurricular
activities not just athletics -
remains on the table.
The policy currently states
that any student athlete is subject
to drug testing at the discretion of
the district.
"We're going to keep the pol-
icy the way it is, but we're going
to further investigate what other
school districts do and talk about
the possibility of expanding' it,"
board Vice Chairman Duncan
Mathewson said. "Nothing final
has been decided about whether
or not we would expand it to
other extracurriculars."
Board member Debra Walker
said she's worried that drug test-
ing for all extracurricular activi-
ties might deter students from
participating.
"How many kids are not doing
sports because they don't want to
be tested?" she asked. "If we
don't answer this question, and
we expand it to all after-school
activities, how many kids won't
participate in any after-school
activities?"


Pedro Fraga, executive direc-
tor of support services for the
School District, said the district
spent up to $40,000 in one school
year on drug tests at $36 per test.
Last year, the district spent about
$15,000 because of a cut in the
number of tests performed.
"At one time, we were testing
[all athletes], and then we went
ahead and. changed it in the mid-
dle of the season," Fraga said.
"Now we cut back to randomly,
but we're getting a very small
percentage [of kids testing posi-
tive for drugs]."
According to Fraga's numbers
from one year, only four out of
400 tests on athletes came back
positive.
"If we think only 1 percent of
kids use alcohol and drugs, that's
delusional thinking," Walker
said. "We chose to test athletes
originally because of a health
concern of kids dropping dead on
the football field. We wanted to
use the drug test as a way to make
sure kids stay healthy. I think it's
essential to test athletes, and I'm
not opposed to expanding it."
Fraga said that after speaking
with officials at other South
Florida schools, he estimates
about one of six use drug tests on
the band and athletes.

Village making


headway on sewers o


Latest plan:
Reprieve for
package .plants
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

Owners of resorts, condos and
other properties with on-site
sewage treatment plants are
eagerly awaiting a decision by
the state Department of
Environmental Protection that
could save them hundreds of
thousands in future sewer costs.
Islamorada Village Manager
Ken Fields and Public Works and
Utilities Director Myles Milander
formulated a proposal-that would
keep affected property owners
from paying twice first to
upgrade their systems and then
again to connect to the village's
planned central sewer system.
"We're expecting to hear back
very soon. If DEP thinks it's
doable and viable, I'll present it
to [the Village] Council as a poli-
cy option," Fields said. "We need
to work with the property owners
to make it economically feasible
for them to hook up."
The state is mandating
advanced sewage treatment in the
Keys by July 2010, but DEP has
sent letters telling package-plant
owners their systems need to be
upgraded as soon as they renew
their plant permits.
The village's proposal would
allow plant owners to renew per-
mits under existing requirements
(without the 2010 advanced treat-
ment standard) as long as they
make a commitment to hook up
to the central system and submit a
hookup fee deposit that would be
held in escrow until the system is
online.
Fields said the central system
would need the equivalent
dwelling units of sewage pro-
duced by Islamorada's 63 pack-
age plants to create a functioning
and affordable system.
"Without those, you lose
economy of scale and equitable
distribution of costs," he said.
Fields and Milander's plan
was a hit at a meeting June 19
with several package-plant own-
ers, who have formed a group
called Florida Keys Clean
Wastewater to deal with the


issue.
"Ken and Myles have done
more in 90 days than anybody
else has in several, years," said
Kris Gustinger, manager of the
Ocean Harbor Condominiums
and a the founder of the group.
"It was a very positive meet-
ing because it shows they have a
plan and are moving forward."
Gustinger said upgrading a
package plant could cost as much
as $350,000, and then thousands
more to connect to the centralized
system once built.
"Some owners have already
spent fees on engineering for

treatment in
the Keys by
July 2010.

their upgrades, and hopefully
they won't have to spend any
more," Gustinger said. "This is a
great step in the long list of steps
that we all have to take."
Fields and Milander have also
met for with members of the
Lower Matecumbe Key Decentral-
ized Wastewater System Steering
Committee
The group formed as a
requirement of a $3.8 million
U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency Grant to build a decen-
tralized system on the eastern
half of the island. The system is
used in rural areas to connect
small numbers of homes and
businesses to several small treat-
ment plants.
Fields said the group's main
job would be to represent the
concerns of Lower Matecumbe
Key residents and keep them
informed of the latest steps by
Islamorada and its wastewater
contractor, E-Sciences.
"This is really a focus group, a
microcosm of the community,"
Fields said.

Despite significant cuts at the
state level, Florida Keys
Community College's board of
trustees has approved a minimum
6 percent raise for all faculty and
staff and a $9,008,145 budget.
"There is not a state agency on
the planet that is doing what
we're doing," Chairman Ed
Sales said at Monday night's
board meeting. "We're going to
be the only state agency that is
giving raises."
Those raises will take effect
July 1, at the start of the 2008-09
fiscal year. The current is $8.7
million.
s The pay increase resulted from
a study the college commissioned
showing many faculty members
aren't making the minimum
I salary for someone with their cre-
dentials and in their position.

Landesberg-Boyle said.
"We were one of the lowest
community colleges in the state
for faculty compensation,"
Landesberg-Boyle said. "This
should bring us about to the mid-

State funding for community
colleges made planning for the
tight budget year tougher for
administrators. State supplemen-
tal funds paid to colleges per full-
time student dropped from
$3,608 last budget year to $2,849
for the coming year, 2008-09.
So how did FKCC balance the
budget?
"The reason the budget is up is
because of the tuition revenue

came to his first budget workshop
on Wednesday with a list of new
revenue sources that could add
nearly $1.3 million to city cof-
fers.
The bad news: Those new rev-
enues would still leave the village
more than $1.7 million short in
balancing Fields' proposed 2008-
09 budget, requiring a tax rate 37
percent higher than the current
year. That means a shortfall of $3
million.
It likely won't stay, as Fields is
working with department heads
on cutting their requests, which
initially included the addition of
16 new employees. And in what
could only be described as bad
timing, Finance Director Alice
Filinovich resigned Tuesday to
pursue "other opportunities",
according to Fields.
"It's definitely a speed bump
in the road, but we'll work
through it," Fields said.
Replacing Filinovich will be a

finances through a contract with


Wednesday, Fields presented
his three-page initial 2008-09
budget, which has projected rev-
enues of $9.7 million, a 4 percent
decrease from this year's budget.
Expenditures were 25 percent
higher at $12.7 million almost
entirely due to the inclusion of 16
new staff positions.
That budget would require a
property tax rate of 2.3057, or
$230.57 per $1,000 of assessed
property value. This year's rate is
1.6853.
"The department [heads] were
told to come forward with budg-
ets that reflect what they need,"
Fields said. "This is not a wish
list."
Some disagreed. Councilman
Dave Boerner put it the most
bluntly.
"I'm extremely disappointed
and disillusioned with this budg-
et," Boerner said. "We're all hurt-
ing right now. Recognize that this
whole economy is hurting. You
all got to feel the pain with us."
The biggest jump in expenses
came from Islamorada Fire


man a new tire station under con-
struction on Lower Matecumbe

people on duty at village stations
at all times.
He said the village is applying
for a federal grant that could pay
for 90 percent of the additional
manpower the first year, 80 per-
cent the second year and reducing
amounts the following three years.
"A million dollars is a lot of
money right now," Boerner said.
"We're worried about how we're
going to pay for what we got right
now."
The Monroe County Sheriff's
Office, which polices the village,
requested four new positions,
while Parks and Recreation and
Information Technology each
requested one and the Building
Department two.
- Mayor Cathi Hill spoke to any
additional personnel increases
with a simple, "No. N-O."
The council asked for a more
detailed report of expenses in

workshop.


increasing from 728 to 772 not
counting the last summer session
of classes and some dual enroll-
ment students. The college also
reported that out-of-state enroll-
ment increased by 47 percent.
The decrease in state funding
prompted Gov. Charlie Crist to
increase tuition rates by 6 per-
cent. That means in-state students
will pay $79.49 per credit hour
compared to $74.81.
Many FKCC positions are
frozen and many long-time facul-

Some said they quit after dis-

Boyle and her management style.
But the president said FKCC
will hire some instructors for the
biology, business and computer
science departments. She's also
planning to fill new positions,
including a full-time grant writer

nary and hospitality education.

Former chief blasts city


Mearns: Fire
service better
under volunteers-
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Longtime Marathon volun-
teer firefighter Randy Mearns
says Marathon Fire Rescue,
now a paid department, is fail-
ing to protect the community.
"This town is scared, they're'
worried and mad. There seems
to be a pattern with the- fire
department performing poorly,
particularly with structure
fires," said Mearns, a former
volunteer fire chief. "Most of
the problems I've seen is poor
decisions being made. The
greatest disservice was to run
off the volunteers."
"Once upon a time ... we had
a volunteer program that was
second to none. Right now I'm
scared and so [is] everyone else
in this town," resident Karen
Farley-Wilkinson said.
They were speaking at a City
Council workshop Thursday at
the city fire station to address
shortcomings in fire protection
that were revealed June 4, when
Robert "Rocketman" Hudson's
home burned down. Many in
the community say the depart-
ment was unprepared when it
came to having enough water to
suppress the fire.
Resident Rick Turner
defended the department, say-
ing state law prevents volun-
teers from fighting fires the way
it was done in the past.
"We were some lucky son of
a guns that we didn't get killed.
There's this thing called safety
we didn't know anything about.
Five or six years ago the state ...
made a law you can't go in a
structure fire without 160 hours
of training," Turner said. "I am
the only certified volunteer fire-
fighter in this city. If you don't
know what you're talking
about, learn before you start

based on a lack of resources and
manpower. Assistant Fire
Marshal Adam Geaneas talked
about the need for more
hydrants and Capt. Lisa Watson
talked about closely with the city's volunteer
firefighters.
Rocketman's daughter,
Roxanne, addressed the audi-
ence donning her sash and tiara
as reigning Florida Keys
Outstanding Teen. She said fire-
fighters did the best they could
and deserved thanks.
"It's a hard job; I wouldn't
have wanted to go in that house.
I just want to make it clear that
everyone has their own opinion,
but everyone has to have a level
head," Roxanne said.
But several residents said
they feel unsafe because of the
amount of time firefighters took
finding an alternative water


source for the Hudson blaze
when the initial 1,750 gallons of
available water to fight it was
gone. Hudson's Calle Ensenada
home was destroyed and the
family lost all its possessions.
Beaver reiterated what he's
been saying since the fire: The
house could not have been
saved, because the fire was
fueled by a flammable liquid
and spread quickly from a plas-
tic-like deck into the attic,
above a heavy tile ceiling.
But he did offer up several
solutions for more efficient
service, including hiring more
staff, offering housing
allowances and raising salaries
to keep firefighters from leav-
ing the Keys for better-paying
jobs. He also wants fire stations
on Grassy Key and in the west
end of the city.
Beaver also pledged to repair
the relationship between volun-
teers and career personnel.

Hotel project returns


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Key West developers are taking
extra precaution in the midst of a
rocky economy, city officials say.
The Key West City Com-
mission will look a development
agreement that would extend a
redevelopment project stated for
2319-2401 N. Roosevelt Blvd., the
Banana Bay Resort and Fairfield
Inn Suites, when it meets at 6 p.m.
Tuesday at Old City Hall.
"Because the economy has
been terrible, nobody is doing
anything," said City Commis-
sioner Dan Kolhage, who voted
against extending the project for'
a year when the commission
approved a year extension in June
2007. "If you come back and do a
development agreement, you


don't have to renew every year."
The project's year is up, and
now its managers are exploring
another option, doing the project
but in phases rather .than all at
once.
Development agreements
break projects down into phases
and involve more input from the
city Planning Department, offi-
cials say.
When the item first came back,
to the City Commission, resi-
dents of adjoining Hilton Haven
Drive raised concerns over a
potential increase in traffic on the
private road. Ocean Properties of
Delray Beach is spearheading the
redevelopment.
Ocean Properties Vice
President Tom McMurrian has


said the company bought both
Banana Bay and the waterfront
section of the Fairfield Inn; the
hotel on the other side of North
Roosevelt is owned by. White
Lodging Association of Indiana.
A year ago, McMurrian point-
ed to the economy as the reason
for the delay in pushing the proj-
ect through. The plan is for 11
transient units, 20 market-rate
apartments and 28 affordable-
housing units.
Ocean Properties bought the'
property in October 2005. White
Lodging kept a parking easement
on the waterfront side of
Roosevelt.
Eighteen already existing
units on the Fairfield property
will remain but be converted to
affordable housing. The other 10
must be constructed.


Chalice find brings fame


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


The newest crewman on the
search and recovery .vessel Blue
Water Rose got a new nickname
this. week: "Golden Child."
That may be because the 20-
year-old diver surfaced Tuesday
with a 385-year-old gold chalice
found at the shipwreck site of the
Spanish galleon Santa
Margarita.
Michael DeMar's find is
described as the biggest since the
early 1980s.
"God, it shines," DeMar said
of the cleaned chalice.
He describes his dive as a typ-
ical underwater day, searching
the shipwreck site 30 miles from
Key West. His metal detector
beeped a familiar sound one
that usually leads to the discovery
of beer cans, he said. But this
time was different. After sifting
through 3 feet of sand, DeMar
made his "first real find."
Prior to the 5-inch-tall chalice,
DeMar said he'd only found
pieces of the ship and pottery.
"I still smile all the time,"
DeMar said Friday. "I can't get it
out of my head."
His old friends from back
home in Washington gave him
his new nickname, and it seems
to have stuck.
The chalice might have
belonged to one of the wealthy
Santa Margarita passengers, said
Dan Porter, chief of operations


-"-. .: 'i -

John Corcoran, head
conservator for Mel Fisher's
Treasures, uses a pick to
delicately remove heavy
encrustation from a gold
chalice Wednesday in Key
West. The. chalice was
discovered Tuesday about 30
miles west of Key West. Salvors
estimate its value at $1 million.
for Blue Water Ventures. The
joint venture partner of Mel
Fisher's Treasures said there is no
way to tell the value yet, but
Porter said it could top $1 million.
"I've been teasing Mike since
he's been here, 'Man it's time
you pull out some beginner's
luck,'" Porter joked.
Whether or not it's beginner's


luck, DeMar hopes it continues.
And even if it takes awhile until
his next big find, he considers
himself lucky. Spending seven to
10 days on the 65-foot boat with
his crew has benefits.
"At the end of the day, you
anchor up, sit down and you've
got the sunset," he said. "Not a
whole lot of people can say they
love what they do.... I wouldn't be
able to do it without my captain
and crew. We're one big family."
The chalice has a crest
engraved in the center, a lions
and castles engraving at the base,
and what appears to be a tax
stamp also on the base, Porter
said.
Porter said prized past finds
from the Santa Maria in the
1980s included gold plates and
bars, and silver coins. Most of the
discoveries since then have been
objects like a gold toothpick,
sword handles and ornate pottery.
But the mother lode, he said,
remains undiscovered: 155 silver
bars 80 to 90 pounds each -
and 80,000 silver coins. The chal-
ice points the team in a potential-
ly crucial and "exciting" direc-
tion, Porter said.
"Everybody's put their heart
and soul into this," Porter said.
"It's what we all want to do. It's a
very dedicated group."
The chalice, after serving as a
champagne glass for the crew,
was cleaned at Mel Fisher's
Treasures and will be restored
there, as it's slightly crushed.

Revenues are up 4.6 percent

rents and fees charged to air-

companies that service planes on

It is Key West itself that has
been taking a hit. Assuming a
two-night stay at $200 per night,
the decrease in arriving passen-
gers from 2005 to 2008


(January-May) adds up to a loss
to the tourism industry of more
than $16 million.
Horton says that 2005 is not,
however, the fairest comparison.
"2005 was the best year we ever
had," he says. Everybody want-
ed to come to Key West that
year, and did, it seems, despite
the four hurricanes that shut

Class teaches how
to reduce pain

Anyone interested in reduc-
ing strain and pain in your body
and increasing range and ease of
movement is invited to what's
called a cortical field re-educa-
tion class July 6 in Key West.
Organizer Judy Greenman of
Marathon says, "Our bodies
respond to the demands and
stresses of daily life [and] new
and old injuries by developing
patterns of contraction in the
muscles. We gradually lose
awareness of those habitually
contracted muscles. As a result,
we are left with discomfort and
limited ways of moving...."
She says "by re-educating the
brain's motor cortex, one can
release deep, long-standing mus-
cular contraction and [end] life-
long behaviors that have organ-
ized around that contraction."
The class, from 12:30 to 1:30
p.m. at Shakti Yoga, 535 Eaton
St., will be followed by a 3.5-
hour workshop.

Upper Keys sea lion


recovering from stroke


Dolphins Plus"
Sugar exhibited
odd behavior
Sugar the sea lion is back at
home at Dolphins Plus in
Islamorada recovering from a
stroke.
. Sugar, 26, had stopped eat-
ing and started to favor her right
side and not use her left fore-
limbs or hind flippers. So her
handlers called the University
of Florida College of Veterinary
Medicine and Mariners
Hospital.
On June 20, they took her to
the Imaging Services
Department at Mariners in
Tavernier and put her through a
CAT scan to determine if she
suffered a stroke or had a tumor.
A CAT scan, or computer-
ized tomography, consists of X-
rays that produce "images of
your body that visualize inter-
nal structures in cross section
rather than the overlapping
images typically produced by
conventional X-ray exams,"
according to the Mayo Clinic's
Web site.
Since so little is known
about sea -lions, Dr. James
Bailey from the UF veterinary
school made the trip south to
help with the procedure.
Following the scan, he deter-
mined it was a stroke.
Mariners spokeswoman
Sheila Konczewski says the
three-dimensional X-rays of
Sugar's body provided invalu-
able information not only about
Sugar but about sea lions in
general. That's a bonus because
research about sea lions isn't as
extensive as it is into other
marine mammals, such as dol-
phins.
The average life span of a
sea lion is 20 years but some
can last into their 30s, accord-
ing to the Dolphin Research
Center on Grassy Key.

James Bailey, University of Florida; Dr. Mike Walsh, Dolphins
Plus; Mariners technologist Mike Beard; Dr. Robert Stevens,

public hearing to consider the imposition of special assessments against certain parcels of
property located in the City. The hearing will be held at 5:30 p.m., or as soon thereafter as
the matter can be heard, on July 22, 2008 at Marathon Government Center, 2798 Overseas
Highway, Marathon, Florida for the purpose of receiving public comment on the proposed

by the City Council with respect to any matter considered at the hearing, such person will
need a record of the proceedings and.may need to ensure that a verbatim record is made,
including the testimony and evidence upon which the appeal is to be made.
The Assessments have been proposed to fund construction of wastewater collection

Highway, Marathon, Florida.
The assessments will be collected on the ad valorem tax bill, as authorized by
Section 197.3632, Florida Statutes. Failure to pay the assessments will cause a tax
certificate to be issued against the property which may result in a loss of title. The City
Council intends to collect the assessments in not to exceed twenty (20) annual assessments,
the first of which will be included on the ad valorem tax bill to be mailed in November 2008.
Future annual assessments may be prepaid at the option of the property owner.

July Parade in Key Largo. This
is the biggest Fourth of July
parade in the Florida Keys,
with more than 50 contingents
moving north up U.S. 1 and
hundreds of parade goers lin-
ing the route. The theme of
this year's parade, to start at
mile marker 98.5, is "Freedom
Shines on the Keys."
The parade starts at 10 a.m.
with a color guard, made up of
men from the 82nd Airborne.
Next up is the editor of the
Upper Keys Reporter, David
Goodhue, age 34, riding in the
paper's pickup truck, decorated
with a banner and flags, throw-
ing Mardi Gras beads. The
grand marshall follows in his
car. This year's grand marshall
is State Rep. Ron Saunfders
(D), who will be waving to the
crowd from a red Mustang
convertible. Next come the
parade judges David Ritz,


president of the Ocean Reef
Club; Jerry Wilkinson, Upper
Keys historian, and Kim
Sovia-Crandon, an aide to U.S.
Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.
Then come the fire trucks, and
the floats (the AARP is doing
one this year!), the Hot Rod
golf carts, the Girl Scouts, and
a long list of candidates for
political office in this year's

I had to learn how to cry for my country


Pull of the
heart followed a
turn of the mind
By MARAGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com
L was 1994. Early spring. We
re in Latvia, Natasha and I.
d we were ironing. There
was sun coming in through the
little flowered curtains. There
was classical music playing.
Opera maybe. Something strange
had happened earlier some-
thing we were puzzling about.
We were Americans, and we did-
tn't understand. We were at the
home of the mother of the math
teacher from the' school where
we taught English, on the edge of
Moscow. We'd come on the train
for a long weekend to Latvia. An
hour before we'd been in the liv-
ing room with the teacher and
her mother, who had spoken
about her country Russia, not
Latvia and her love of her


I





I


country. And she said that she
would do just anything to go
back to it. She had broken down
in front of us and wept. And now
we puzzled. We just could not
understand. How could you cry
for love of your country? We
could not do this. We could not
imagine how you could cry for
love of country. We talked about
this, and ironed. And that night
we went into the city with the
math teacher. Cobblestone
streets, a large square, a theatre'
lobby, guards on the street with
frozen faces we went up to
them and said hello in Latvian
and they would not say anything
back and that made us laugh -
that is all I remember.
Fourteen years have gone by
now. And now, I know. I know
what it is like to cry for my coun-
try. It was not one particular
thing, like 9/11. The change has
come from a general reflection on
many things. The turning of the
mind has led to a turning of the


heart that is so pronounced that I
usually cannot now listen to or
sing "God Bless America" with-
out feeling at least close to tears.
The final push across the line
might have come when I was in
Prague a few years ago with a
group of young Americans. I'd
studied Czech literature in col-
lege, and had been to Prague
years before. I think that secretly,
I believed Czechs to be better
than Americans, in a way. I think,
although I wouldn't have ever
said it so plainly, I believed most
Europeans to be superior to
Americans. (This mild self-
loathing was not my own fabri-
cation, in retrospect, but was the
natural result of a soft anti-
Americanism that ran through a
lot of my liberal Catholic high
school and university education.)
But then, one day in Prague,
when I had gone off alone
exploring, something happened. I
was in the train station examin-
ing a schedule, when I was
accosted. I took off running after
the man, down a long hallway,
with people on either side, out
into the bus yard, where groups
of people were standing around
here and there. I. ran and ran and
ran, following the man across the
yard. He was looking back and
laughing. I passed a group of

men and shouted to them, asking
them in Czech to tell me
where the police station was.
One of them pointed lazily up the
hill, and then turned back to his
conversation. I reached the end
of the yard and the man disap-
peared down into the street. I
stood there alone, distraught cry-
ing. And then I looked up to see
a boy running toward me 20
years of age maybe, wearing a
white T-shirt. He ran up to me
and the first thing he said, was
this: "I would have come sooner
but no one would watch my bags
for me." He was an American. I
told him what happened. He
threw down his backpack and
asked me to watch it. I pointed to,
where the man had gone. He
took off his T-shirt and ran
around the comer and out of
sight.
I waited, for five, 10 minutes
maybe. And then he came back.
He told me that he found the
man, and had beat his head
against the stone wall. I smiled
and I threw my arms around him
to thank him. He put back on his
t-shirt, and his backpack, and
walked off. I never saw him
again. All I know is that he was a
young American, whose first
instinct was to do good to risk
personal harm, to come to the aid
of someone he'd never met
before, and from whom he want-
ed nothing in return. It is not the
instinct of all peoples of the
world. It is a distinctly American
impulse. America is great, they
say, because it is good.
A year or so after the incident
in Prague, Ronald Reagan died,
and I spent days in front of the
television. I also went to the
bookshelves, and took to reading
about the struggle Reagan waged
against communism as president
of the Screen Actors Guild, and
how it shaped him. He did not

ever falter in his determination to
bring communism to its knees.
He understood, better than
almost anyone, the danger that
we faced. The communists had
set upon Hollywood with the
goal of gaining control over the
images and narratives that shape
the popular imagination. It was
imperative that the Soviet Union
be defeated, not tolerated, not
kept at bay, but soundly, finally,
defeated. Reagan knew this. He
was not in good company. On C-
SPAN in the days following the
death of Reagan, a woman called
in to say that she hoped that one
day we could become the kind of
country that Reagan believed us
to be. It was one of the most
beautiful things I've ever heard
said anywhere. But now, there
are more days than not when I
believe that we are that country
that he believed us to be. Now,
today. It is that shining time to be
an American. To be proud to be
an American. And to even cry,
sometimes, for love of country.

Look what's blowing in the door at the Armory


June shutter party
and sftly bent
seagrass
Stopped by The Studios of
Key West last week to see
sculptor Jim Racchi's slides
(which runs on a continuous
loop in the main hall) of his trip
to Hong Kong for the Tin Shui
Wai International Sculpture
Symposium. He constructed
"Walking Couple #5" for the
wetland park site of the sculpture
festival.
What I found at TSKW was
an explosion of activity with all
sorts of things going on.
Eric Holowacz, the executive
director, Elena Devers, the mar-
keting coordinator and Martha
Barnes, the programming coordi-
nator, were off at an international
arts administration conference,
no doubt soaking up more ideas
for the organization.
Meanwhile facilities coordina-
tor Lauren McAloon was setting
up the main hall for a "shutter
painting party" while Nova Scotia
artist-in-residence Helen Verbanz
contemplated the beginnings of
her installation "Sea Grass."
A music camp for kids is in
progress and the Summer Art
Academy begins July 14 for 2nd
to 5th graders. Directed by
Florida-certified and Montessori-
trained educator Monica
Fienemann, the two-week-long
sessions cover art history and
local arts and include field trips.
Cost is $195 per child per
week/$175 for TSKW friends
and members. Contact
Fienemann, education and out-
reach coordinator, at
monica@tskw.org or by phone at
296-0458 for more information.

Racchi
Racchi, one of the founders of
Sculpture Key West, returned
from the gathering of internation-
al sculptors with a slide show
that showed the other sculptors at
work, genre scenes of Hong
Kong life, and the arts Testival in
the urban sculpture park.
Parade dragons figured
repeatedly in the slides: a classic
one, a two-person version and
one with the head of the dragon
on tall poles, making it spiral
vertically.

Shutters
The shutter party was a birth-


day cele-
bration for
Emalayn
Mercer.
She lugged
A the 17 stur-
dy wooden
'- shutters
from her
J' house into
the Studios'
main hall
and invited
Judi Bradford twenty-
some of
her friends to paint them in wild
and fun ways so that when they
are shut against a storm, they
will entertain. In good weather,
they fold back and show the
fresh white side.
"My friends are not artists.
They are fishermen, realtors,
waiters and restaurant owners.
Definitely no one who knows
what they're doing on this proj-
ect." She was setting up the food
and drink tables both had to
be enlarged to accommodate her
preparations for the event.
A circle of a dozen easels and
some risers held the shutters, and
tables of brushes, water and
paint were strategically placed.
She was excited about the
prospect of her friend-painted
shutters, "but I'm hoping no one
will see them," she said, alluding
to the hurricane element.

Verbanz
The conceptual artist from
Canada who contributed the ice
print photos at an earlier TSKW
event is creating an installation
that emphasizes the sea grasses
of our nearby waters.
"I like the shapes and motion
of grasses," she said. "There is a
flicker effect when they move."
A wave of fencing curls over
the floor at a height of about six
feet, and the beginnings of grass-
es devised from clear tubing and
bulrushes were being assembled

Mad Hot for ballroom at Marathon's CAMP


Summer students
learn to Salsa,
Meregue and Rumba
By MARAGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

Shave techniques of getting
through the 'Uhh, yucky'
stage," says Maritza Jones,
the pretty brown-skinned
dance teacher in a bright yel-
low dress. The kids start out
not touching at all. Then,
chopsticks are placed between
the boy and girl... and then,
they do pancakes, where the
boy stands with arms held
out, palms up, and the girl
stands facing him, with arms
out, palms placed upon the
boys.' At the end of the first
class, they come together in a
'dance frame,' with the girl's
left hand on the boy's shoul-
der and her right hand in his,
held high in the air. And the
boy, who has transformed into
a gentleman through the
course of the hour, escorts the
young lady off the dance
floor.

Walking into the ballroom

The same Rumba song is
playing, "...que tango yo..."

them, slightly awkward,
slouchy. Sometimes they
smile. You can tell it is new

goals and 15 assists for last win-

girls soccer team, received the
player-of-the-year trophy at the
team's recent awards banquet in
the school auditorium.

She was chosen for the
award by her coaches and team-

"Kara was a player who was
able to watch and learn on the

"As she grew as a player and as

Kendall slugged seven home
runs in a 17-1 contest.
"We thought we had a
chance to reach the state cham-
pionship tournament, where
-rhaybe we'd see a club as strong
as Kendall," Majors head coach
Tony Romero said. "We didn't
expect it in the first round of the
district."
"They had some huge kids,
and pitchers who throw hard,"
he said. "They're the heavy
favorites to win the district, and
I wouldn't be surprised to see
them on TV" at the Little

Williamsport, Pa.
Kirk Sentz scored for the
Keys team, and Derek Romero

An hour-long rain delay
Wednesday dampened hopes for
an Upper Keys comeback in a

"We had our chances. We
loaded the bases three times but
couldn't get the big hit we need-

said.
After defensive errors helped
Doral pull out to a 5-1 early
lead, the Upper Keys chipped
away at the margin.
"Then the rain came and we
had an hour delay," Beaty said.
"When we got back on the field,
the rust showed. It was a tough

"The girls came so close [to
the state finals tournament] this
year," Paterson said. "I think the
ones coming back are excited
about how far they can go. I'll do
anything I can to support them."
Paterson played at the top
level in Grenada and in a com-
petitive Central Florida league
before moving to the Keys 16
years ago.
His daughter Jasmine, a
national team player, goes to
Coral Shores as a freshman this
fall.
"Jasmine had opportunities to
play in other strong soccer pro-
grams but she wants to win a
championship with the girls she
grew up with," the new coach
said.
Paterson coaches the Upper
Keys Under-16 team-headed to
the American Youth Soccer
Organization's National Games
in Hawaii in early July. Seven
players from that team won an
Under-14 title in 2006.
